Sharp joins the 3D smartphone bandwagon... in Japan only

Sharp joins the 3D smartphone bandwagon... in Japan onlySharp has become the third phone manufacturer to unleash a 3D-capable smartphone on the mobile public, following in the footsteps of LG and HTC with the Android-powered Aquos SH-12C.

However, just like the HTC Evo 3D, it's highly unlikely we'll ever be seeing the SH-12C in the UK, as this high-powered smartphone has been earmarked solely for Sharp's home market of Japan.

The Aquos SH-12C features an impressively powerful 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, and a spacious 4.2in qHD glasses-free 3D display.

Like the LG Optimus 3D we have been promised here in the UK, you can take pics and shoot video of your own in 3D too thanks to the twin-lens 8MP camera, while you also get 512MB of RAM and all the other connectivity bells and whistles you'd expect from a high-end Android device.

Speaking of which, it's Android 2.3 on board as you'd expect, and the Aquos SH-12C will be hitting the DoCoMo network in Japan on May 20.

Given that Sharp's mobile business is practically non-existent outside of the Far East, we'd say the chances of us ever seeing this one in person is practically zero.
